The Miller Creek Interpretive Trail provides opportunities for education, solitude, recreation, and stewardship of natural resources. The Miller Creek Interpretive Trail is less than a mile long loop and connects 14 sites of ecologic and geologic interest. In 2012, the site markers were updated with the information formerly found in the Interpretive Trail Guide. Questions about accessibility?  Check out the trail map or email

Trail Maintenance & Surface Water Quality Monitoring

The LSC Interpretive trail crosses Miller Creek at two points. Trails, foot bridges, and monitoring equipment are maintained by Biology Department Faculty, staff, and student employees. Additionally, almost 300 maple, oak and pine tree saplings are planted on LSC property near Miller Creek each year to replace the old-growth birch trees that are reaching the end of their life.

In cooperation with Natural Resource Research Institute (NRRI) and Duluth Steams, Lake Superior College hosts and maintains a site dedicated to Miller Creek stream monitoring. For information and access to this data, go to
